The most recent attack left nine people in Angwan Tudu area of the Local Government dead today Wednesday 3rd June 2020. This waste of life is uncalled for and we condemn it without reservation.
“The Kajuru community has lived together from time immemorial and we do not see any reason why they should start killing themselves as they have been doing in the recent past.
“The Forum calls on the Kajuru traditional/religious leaders to call their people to order. We call on security men to act swiftly by apprehending the murderers and bring them to book. They should also increase surveillance in the area to preempt such attacks in the future.
